Châteauneuf-du-Pape "Cuvée Emma" Cyril Coulon France
This wine is made from a vineyard plot less than 1 hectare in size with vines over 70 years old. A blend of 60% Grenache,20% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre and 10% Cinsault.
Whole grape clusters (stems and all) are used. Spicy with red plum flavour, hint of pine, lavender and clove. Very aromatic and lip smacking acidity on the finish. Small production from this exceptional hand-crafted wine, hardly ever found outside France. Despite It's 14.5% Abv this wine has a gentleness that makes it very drinkable and elegant, keeping it's strength and tannic levels at bay.
Food Pairing Beef Bourguignon, rich and hearty winter casserole works well, Roast saddle of lamb.
